Jess has mental health problems and poor physical mobility. She struggles to cope with her finances and has suddenly come up against a short-term crisis with her car insurance, for which she has sought help from Citizens Advice. They will try to sort out her finances, but her immediate need is to keep her car insurance going for a further month, as she will be scarcely mobile if she can't continue driving. Jess would greatly appreciate a donation for the premium.

I am diagnosed with terminal cancer but the prognosis is unclear as to how long I will live it could be 6 months or longer, due to the treatment I have no immune system and cannot manage stairs. My previous flat was flooded 6 times and have been moved into a bungalow. All furniture is ruined and mouldy/contaminated and any further infections could result in my death. I would appreciate any assistance that you may be able to provide.
